Alliance Title's 5th Annual Closing the Hunger Gap Food Drive!
With help from Hacker Middle School
October 1st through 30th
We will be collecting non-perishable food the whole month of October. Hacker Middle School will be helping us in our efforts to Close the Gap.
Our goal this year is 5,000 pounds of food or more.
Studies by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) show that in 2010, 85.5 percent of households had enough resources available to them to provide food for all of their family members. Yet, in that same year, another 17.2 million households (14.5 percent) experienced food insecurity where the lack of resources resulted in families struggling to feel their family members. Food insecurity reaches households in every county in the United States and is most common in rural areas and large cities.
